Kyle, It truly seems that A2.Com reports any little thing that goes on in Ypsilanti. However I notice the same does not apply to Ann Arbor, when it comes to crime. A2 has way more than its share of crime. I actually take the time and listen to the scanner on some nights and the next morning have read about some miniscule petty crime incident that took place in Ypsilanti, but nothing on the FELONY that took place in A2. Whether you admit it or not, A2.Com is biased. For example, why won't A2.Com give an update or mention anything to do with the Parking Garage rapist/attacker who was striking in 2011/2012? This guy has not been caught and even making an update with no new news, still helps! It lets the public know that those barbaric crimes are still being investigated and AAPD has not forgotten about it! I know why A2.Com does not report about Ann Arbor crime as much as they could and should - It makes A2 look bad, it gives the City and U of M a bruise. Of course we cannot have any bad impressions about Ann Arbor or U of M, especially reporting about the crimes that take place there.

Abe, You are coming across as a person who is really looking for a reason to complain. Yes, both Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti have their problems, and not just crime related. Have you read the articles posted about U/M's mishandling of the resident physician with child pornography? How about the continuing saga of the Ann Arbor School Board's fumbling of the budget, Superintendent search, etc... that hardly paints a picture that Ann Arbor should be proud of. I also don't recall articles being posted about the Ypsilanti football team being embarrassed for the actions of their coaches and 3 of their players facing charges. I really don't see Kyle or anybody from having an agenda to deflect the perception of Ann Arbor's problems at the expense of Ypsilanti.

Abe, that's just the way it goes.It ain't gonna change.Do you think for one second they would report a dine and dash ( like they did a few weeks ago ) if it happened in Ann Arbor ?

Abe, I am more inclined to believe that there is just less news in Ypsilanti. I don't think Kyle Feldscher holds animus towards my town. I don't. I also don't think he wants to admit that he is desperate for Ypsilanti stories. We are a typical town of 20,000. We go to work, we come home, we go to bed. Not a lot of drama. So, what is Kyle to do? Ignore the incidents that DO happen? That would be bad reporting, too. So, he writes what he has to write. It looks like bias, but it's really just a benign artifact of always having a deadline.

Abe: I'm glad you appreciate the work we do here. I just wanted to point out a few recent crime articles from Ann Arbor. These were all posted this week: Also, here's an article from earlier this month about a crime in Ann Arbor similar to this one. We do report on home invasions and burglaries in Ann Arbor of which we're aware.

Look. All I'm asking and would like to see, is fair reporting. No biased stuff. Touche on the articles you pointed out. I was not able to see them or find them on my end. I truly appreciate what you folks do, but I get so upset when Ypsilanti gets picked on when there is just as much going on in other cities that you cover. My fingers are tired. Have a nice day. -Abe

How convenient to write something about the 2011 attacks during the Summer, when most of the students are gone. Why wasn't a article published during Fall or Winter? When all of the students are here? After all, they should be aware. I'm sure some of them do not even know this happened and the attacker is still at large. I hope the story you're referring too has new information, otherwise why did it take so long and not published while majority of the students are in town? They should know about it AND they may be able to help, too! Not to mention they are informed that this guy is still on the loose!

Abe, here are two stories regarding crime in Ann Arbor on our home page right now.

It's not just that particular story, Kyle. It's how A2.Com reports about Ypsilanti crime but tends to leave out Ann Arbor. I just scrolled down the entire page for A2.Com; and cannot find a SINGLE article about a single incident in Ann Arbor!! Not One! When it comes to Ann Arbor, all A2.Com wants to write about is either food, drink or some sort of event, but when it comes to crime.....well, you folks at A2.Com take it easy on the good ole City of Ann Arbor, which has PLENTY of DAILY crime. Let me ask you? Have you ever been to Jefferson St in Ypsilanti? Well, have you? What do you expect from that neighborhood? Reporting about some stolen video games is all you got? So you mean to tell me not one incident happened in Ann Arbor? Are you sure? Ypsilanti is a wonderful city. Sure, it has it's bruises, but so does Ann Arbor and so does U of M campus!! But you folks refuse to write anything about it!! And when you do it's because you have to write something here and there. Stop being biased towards Ypsilanti! Ann Arbor is not any better.

Abe - John Counts is working on a story regarding the sexual assaults in Ann Arbor from the summer of 2011 as we speak. We've exchanged comments on this topic many times. I don't really know if there's anything else I can say that will add to the conversation.

The police might want to check the neighborhood for any 30-40 year old males who have no job and live in their parents basement for the criminal.
